Question about Washing Machines
Brand New, won't spin on Spin setting, spins on others. Tried all the trouble shooting theories in manual. It's comes up on the readout out as 9 mins Spinning time, then turns over slowly for a short while then reads "End"

SOURCE: Washer not spinning
The easy answer you've been looking seeking. Its a drive coupler: Cut and paste here http://www.repairclinic.com/0100_23.asp I used to work for SearsParts Direct and the most requested part for these top loading washers by Kenmore, which the majority are actually whirlpools, was a drive coupler. The main reason it is not spinning is because the drive coupler is probably worn out--a part that come in a set: two white plastic wheels with pegs that interlock with each other through a black rubber middle part. This is the part you need. It's a relitively inexpensive part and repair can be done by anyone handy. Call a discount part center and ask for a drive coupler for a whirlpool/kenmore washer and they will know what your talking about without hesitation.

This unit has a neutral drain transmission. When it first goes to spin it will drain without spinning to ease load on motor. It will then pause motor and when it restarts it then spins.
You probably have a bad timer that is not pausing the motor. Monitor washer from the start of spin cycle to end to see if it pauses then starts again. If not, replace timer.

I am not a repair professional. I am just a 78 year old
man who has been making his own repairs for about
50 years. Therefore the washer or dryer ID doesn't
mean much to me. I came to fixya looking for a
schematic for an really old AM/FM radio and
discovered that more than 4,700 people were asking
for help with a washer repair. I recently had a washer
repair of my own and found an excellent video which
showed me how to take my machine apart. This
video made it possible for me to do my own repair. I
was so impressed with the video that when I saw all
these people needing help, I wanted to tell them
about it. If you have a top loader (washer) of the
direct drive type, this video might be a Godsend for
you. If you look at the back of your washer and the
panel is solid (no small inspection plate to remove)
chances are you have a direct drive and this video
is just what you need. You can see this video at
www.acmehowto.com You will probably need
more help in determining what the problem is and
how to fix it. If your repair problem is a washer or
dryer I suggest you go to www.applianceaid.com
where they have very good trouble shooting and
repair information on most washers and dryers.
I think you'll find what you need there. Don't worry
about the timer, they hardly ever go bad. Good
luck with it. If I have helped you, please rate my
advice on fixya.
